    Hi, I got one of those mixed packages from GARF where you get a bunch of corals for a hundred bucks. I got a LOT for the hundred bucks. Most of the stuff I can identify but I don't know what this is, do you?

    Also, I re-aquascaped my tank yesterday and these two ended up really close together. The big puffy thing (anyone know what it is?) is much puffier than it usually is. Is it because it's loving it's new friend or is it trying to kill my Zoo's? Should I move them?

    thanks!

    That looks like a chalice coral. If it's touching your zoas, you should move it.

    Thats a bubble coral (LPS) touching to zoa's.
    Can you get a pic from farther away on the 1st 1? Almost looks like a type of briareum.sp.

    Is it ok for a bubble coral to touch zoos? Do they look stressed?

    I can move it, but it looks so happy to have a friend! Darn.
